I used the reviews to see how HD6850's would overclock and how one would do compared to other cards.

Reading reviews on OCC was what made me decide to register here as a member. I used it everytime I had to test a piece of hardware.


They brought me here too originally :biggrin:

I think we need another poll: Who joined OCC forums because of the tech reviews?

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I did. That and to learn more about OC and hardware in general, as well as, to get some feedback on my build.

absolutely yes. without those reviews/reviewers life would not be that easier :popcorn:
and would you believe that there are bunch of people out there still (mostly the ones who are taking their first bite in computing/PC building) who doesn't care or didn't knew that such product reviews/reviewers exist? :pfp:
